• Special to the Daily Leader
Children of all ages can trick or treat at the “Halloween Celebration 2010” from 5 to 7 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 24, at the Southgate Mall in Liberal. Sponsored by the Mexican-American Ministries Liberal Care Center, the event will also be a fundraiser for the Seward County United Way. Admission will be $1 at the door for United Way.
“We had more than 600 people at last year’s event,” said Dora Ponce of Mexican American Ministries Liberal Care Center. “We had a very safe and fun event for the children, and we raised more than $600 for United Way. We’re a United Way agency and we just wanted to give back for all their support.”
Ponce said there is still booth space available. The space is free but organizations and businesses need to plan to bring their own tables and chairs. 
“We’re anticipating that it will be an even bigger event this year so we are advising people to plan for 1,000 this year. We ask that each booth provide a treat or an activity for the children.” 
There will be a prize for the best decorated booth.
Those interested in having a booth can register at the Liberal Care Center, 624-6865, or e-mail This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

“I had a great time last year,” said Kay Burtzloff, executive director of the Seward County United Way. “I think what parents like about it is that they can turn their kids loose and know that it’s a safe environment. Unfortunately, trick or treating door-to-door without your parent is not the safe activity it was when I was a kid.”
The Southgate Mall is donating the space for the event and Burtzloff said, “We are deeply grateful for the support of the Southgate Mall and Best Market. They have really shown themselves to be great community 
supporters.”
